Council Boosts Footpath Funding

Mayor and Ward 4 Councillor, Mark Greenhill, is pleased to allocate an extra $251,000 to boost the funding of new footpaths in priority locations across the City, including from the GWH to Blaxland Public School.
Blue Mountains City Council has allocated an extra $251,000 to boost the funding of new footpaths in priority locations across the City.

Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill, said “The surplus funds will be spent on construction of new footpaths and shared paths with a focus on missing linkages in the footpath network and those locations that have a clear need for footpath extension.”

Council’s Pedestrian Access Mobility Plan aims to create safe and accessible pathways of travel that improves our connections with our destinations and each other and encourages people of all ages to walk for everyday transportation and enjoyment.

The Plan sets out the program of works to be completed progressively in order of priority over a 10 year period.

“The extra funding for new footpath is a result of a budget surplus of $466,000 for 2016-17”, said the Mayor. “It is pleasing that we can allocate the unexpected funding to community priorities such as this, as well as improving the playing surface of our busiest sportsground at Knapsack Oval.”

The funds will be used to create new sections of footpath across the City, including to Blaxland Public School from the Great Western Highway; Emu Plains Rd, Mt Riverview; Hawkesbury Rd, Springwood; Wentworth St, Blackheath; and Cleveland and Adelaide Sts, Lawson.

The additional footpath works will be delivered over the next three months.
